when these recommendations
are made on and supported
by a strong foundation.
.' "We must start with a well
defined course of action," he
said. "First, we must get a
good sample of student opin
ion and then make a vigor
ous, all-out effort to attain the
students' wishes. Student
Council members must really
push an effort like1 this and
gather as much information
as possible which we may
then build a foundation up
on." Research Books
It was stated that Frank
Lundy, Director of University
Libraries, wanted to purchase
more books for research pur
poses. He is also not con
vinced that students want ex
tended and increased library
hours nor is he convinced
that students would use these
if they were adopted.
It was further stated that
the staff of the Love Memo
rial Library thinks the library
should be used more for re
search purposes than for sim
ply a place in which to study.

Report on Calendar
Causes Questioning
A Calendar Committee re
port was also the subject of
Student Council comment at
the Wednesday meeting.
Some of the Council members
were curious about the ab
sence of Council opinion on
the beginning of the 1960-61
school term at the recent
Faculty Senate meeting.
Dennis . .Nelson, Chairman
of the Council Calendar Com
mittee, told the Council that
all the evidence that was sub
mitted to him was three let
ers and the straw vote of the
Council's preference.
"The Faculty Calendar
Committee took a survey of
faculty date preferences and
based their decision on this
since the Student Council rep
resentative was not present
at that meeting," he said.
"Evidence submited just
did not have enough weight
for us to try to present our
point, and the presentation of
our argument would have had
to be presented to the Faculty
Senate since the Faculty Cal
endar Committee had already
made its decision.
Jack Nielsen told the Coun
cil that three letters showed
some support, but not enough.
He also explained that the
reason a Council member was
not present at the Faculty
Commencement, Meters
Discussed by Council
In addition to school cal
enders and library hours,
parking meters and 'schedule
conflicts were discussed by
Council members. Elimina
tion of the speaker at the
Commencement exercises al
so evoked opinions of various
activities represented at the
The Parking Board stated
that they had submitted a
recommendation to James
Pittenger, assistant to t h e
chancellor, that the twelve
minute meters be changed to
either two or four hour meters
since very few students used
the twelve minute meters.
The Parking Board made this
recommendation since the
Student Union parking lot is
still on an experimental basis.
Ken Tempero, social com
mittee chairman, stated that
the Faculty Sub-Committee on
Social Affairs is planning to
make two recommendations
to the Faculty Committee on
Student Affairs.
One of the recommenda
tions will be: on closed dates,
such as Ivy Day, Homecom
ing "and the Chancellor's Re
ception, nothing else should
be scheduled. The other is:
there j should be no duplica
tions un scheduling dates of
events which involve a large
segment of the student body
andor paid public perform
ance and that events sched
uled first should be given
It was also reported that
Council that the recent boost
in the library's budget was
used up on the increasing
costs of the library and not
on new books. He said that
there are numerous demands
from every channel that
books and journals be ob
tained and the administrators
of the library have to be
thoroughly convinced of a
plan before they will approve
it due to the shortage of
He also told the Council
that it would be a matter of
"taking money from one
pocket and moving it to an
other" if the library were to
extend and increase hours.
Chuck Wilson mentioned the
earlier vote of the Council
that was submitted to tho
Library Committee and also
told the Council of a poll
taken last year which had in
cluded over 700 University
students which was submitted
to the library as a sample of
student desires.
He said the Council must
get views of the student body
and then express them in a
motion by the Student Coun
cil. Then, he said, we should
get a "yes" or "no" answer
Calendar Committee meeting
was due to a mix-nn in the
mail system.
The Council was notified of
the meeting in time, but the
notification did not reach the
Council's hands until one day
after the meeting since the
letter had gotten lost in the
rearrangement of the activity

explained that it was not the
fault of any person or organi
zation, as had perhaps been
understood by some.
J. B. Fournier said the Stu
dent Council should show stu-
.i t : MMj or 1 .n( ! n
(straw vote of Council on
calendar question) should in
dicate the student opinion for
the campus.
Jack Nielsen told the Coun
cil that "members acted as
individuals in presenting opin
ion and not as reDresenta-
tives. Bob Krohn informed
the Council that a "straw v
vote shows only individual
opinion and is not representa
tive." It was stated that the Stu
dent Council weight and the
letters were found to be in
sufficient and though a pre
sentation of this evidence to
the Faculty Senate would
hurt the Council more than
help it. '
the faculty is interested in
finding a more effective and
fair method of punishing stu
dents for offenses. The pre
sent method consists of either
dismissal, conduct probation
or conduct warning.
In connection with the opin
ion upon whether a speake
should be engaged for Com
mencement, Jack Nielsen re
ceived various Council mem
ber's individual findings on
the subject. Builders Board
was in favor of having a
speaker, 12-4. The four dis
senting votes being cast be
cause of the heat problem in
the Coliseum. A. W. S. was
unanimously in favor of a
speaker, although they
thought a time limit should
be imposed and a local
speaker be considered.
TWA and Tassels wera
in favor of eliminating a
speaker unless the speech
were a short one delivered by
a member of the University.
They believe tradition should
be followed and retain the
Coliseum as the site of Com
mencement instead of moving
it to Pershing Auditorium or
Memorial Stadium where it
would be cooler.
Some thought that a speaker
for Commencement was very'
necessary and that the other
program should be c0H.en.5edi
to avoid the .amount of time
consumed. They also thought
the selection of the speaker
was of prime importance in
the question of eliminating
speakers at Commencement.
